    The simple answer is....unfortunately no.
    At the moment the Dell XPS and Voodoo notebooks are the only ones offering upgradeable GPUs. Hopefully this should change next year with the introduction of PCI-x, but this will only help those that buy a new lappie with this tech.

    You could on two conditions:
    The graphics card is not soldered into the motherboard
    Sony has a better graphics card specifically for that notebook

    You would have to do the upgrade yourself, but it is possible.

    GPU cooling (100°C->75°C)* Inspiron 8600 * 1.8ghz Pentium M * 128 MB Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo (337/242 -> 400/300) * 2x512 MB DDR2700 SDRAM * Aquamark 3: 24058 * 3DMark'03: 3404 * 3DMark'01 SE: 13120
